Morocco Goalkeeper Munir Joins FC Malaga

FC Malaga Wants to Boost Cooperation with Morocco’s Football Academies

Rabat – Morocco’s Goalkeeper Munir El Kajoui Mohamedi has officially signed a 4-year contract with FC Malaga.

After spending four years with Numancia CD where he sat on the bench, the Atlas Lion will play alongside two other Moroccan football players, Youssef En-Nesyri who just signed for 3 seasons and Badr Boulahroud, who has been with the club since 2015.

“Goalkeeper Munir El Kajoui signed for FC Malaga after the end of his contract with Numancia CD. It will be presented Friday at the stadium of La Rosaleda,” wrote the Spanish club on social media yesterday.

The Atlas Lions was indeed presented to the rest of the team Friday morning. FC Malaga live-streamed his first steps with his new jersey.

As for his career with the Moroccan team, the Spanish-Moroccan football player was the only goalkeeper to not concede a single goal during the six qualification games preceding the World Cup.

Despite Morocco’s elimination in the first round of the 2018 World Cup in Russia, El Kajaoui has proven to be a valuable goalkeeper for Hervé Renard, who will probably appeal to him for the 2019 African cup (CAN).

Born in Melilla to parents from Nador, the 29-year-old footballer began his training career in 2010 with Goyu Ryu, followed by AD Ceuta and then Almeria.

His transfer to Numancia in 2014 allowed him to join the national team in 2015, during a friendly game against Uruguay in Agadir (0-1).

French coach Hervé Renard will count on him in many games with the selection.
